WinMaximumize 1.1
Instantly expand a selected window to fill any available free space

If you've several application windows visible on your PC desktop, then organising them normally requires lots of manual dragging of the various window borders. Which works, but is tedious.

WinMaximumize can help to automate this process, though. Once it's running, simply pressing the hotkey (Ctrl+F1 by default, though this can be changed) will extend the window border in all directions to fill any available space. As long as the program can be resized, anyway (if an application window isn't normally resizeable, WinMaximumize will have no effect).

And so if there's a window above your chosen application, for instance, and to the right, its window borders will instantly extend to meet theirs, without you having to do anything else at all.

This worked just fine for us, but if you don't like the results - or you decide you've just finished with your windows in this arrangement - then another hotkey (Ctrl+Shift+F1 by default) will restore the window to its previous size and position.

One small issue here comes in WinMaximumize's RAM use. It's not too bad (15MB or so on our test PC), but still rather more than we expected considering what the program is doing.

It does provide a quick and easy way to help reorganise your desktop, though, and if you're tired of resizing windows manually then WinMaximumize could save you a lot of time.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
